FINNISH ARCHITECTURE. REVIEW 2018
Tampere Hall, 27.8.-5.9.2019
Finland’s biennial architectural review presents a selection of recent projects showcasing new trends and high standards of excellence in Finnish architecture. The review is organized by the Museum of Finnish Architecture, the Finnish Association of Architects SAFA and the Alvar Aalto Foundation. This year’s jury was chaired by the Portuguese architect Gonçalo Byrne, a recent member of the jury that selected the winner of the Mies van der Rohe Award. The two other members of the Biennial Review jury are Maire Mattinen, architect and Anni Vartola, architect and critic.
The 16 shortlisted projects – including Kampin Helmi – offer an example of recent accomplishments in high-level contemporary planning, renovation, and sustainable, responsible design. They bear witness to the fact that there is no single architectural school of thought in Finland at the moment – “except for the school of quality.”
The review started at the Museum of Finnish Architecture 13.6. – 16.9.2018. It visited the Alvar Aalto Museum at Jyväskylä –
